Phones and money recovered from an Ozone Park cell phone store robbery on Friday, June 7.

Four men were arrested for armed robbery and criminal possession of a weapon after they held up an Ozone Park cell phone store Friday.

Three of the men, concealing their faces with bandanas, entered a T-Mobile store located at 97-05 Rockaway Boulevard around 7:30 p.m., and ordered two customers and one store employee into a back room at gunpoint where an additional employee was located, said police.

They then told the store employees to open the safe and they removed a cash register tray containing money. The suspects also removed cell phones from the storage area and the victims’ personal property.

Locking all four victims in the room, the suspects fled in a minivan with out of state license plates that was occupied by an additional suspect, said police.

Officers assigned to the 106th Precinct’s Domestic Violence unit searching the area for the suspects, stopped the vehicle at 79th Street and Linden Boulevard, and arrested the four men—Reon Adams, 22, of Brooklyn, Kyle Balkisson, 18, of Brooklyn, Tevin Griffith, 21, of, Queens, and Akeem Honroe, 15, of Brooklyn.

The property stolen during the robbery was recovered from inside of the van as well as a semiautomatic handgun.
